Fabric 101: Consider Repeats for Calculating and Cutting

Continuing our discussion [video] from yesterday, now that you know what a repeat is, here is a short video on how to apply it.

Why is it so important to calculate and cut based on the repeat

If you were simply going by the cut length and not paying attention to the repeat, every additional cut you make will be at a different point in the pattern. 

If you calculate and cut according to the repeat, then every cut will be at the exact same point of the pattern.

Next up.... drop repeats. Oooh, now that can be a tricky one! Thanks for stopping by, please share if this has been helpful for you!

Until next time.....
